Life of Anthony


Published August 20, 2013


LibriVox recording of The Life of Anthony by Athanasius of Alexandria. (Translated by H. Ellershaw.)

Read in English by Matthew James Gray.

Anthony (251-356CE) lived in Egypt, and became one of the fathers of Christian desert monasticism. When he was about 18 years old, and having inherited a large fortune, he heard a sermon about Jesus challenging the rich young ruler to "go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasures in heaven; and come, follow Me." (Matt 19:21) Antony immediately sold all he had, and went out into the desert to life a life of poverty, chastity and obedience. For the rest of his life, he fought demons, performed miracles, becoming a legend in his own long lifetime. (Summary by Matthew James Gray)
